Since both GOTV and DSTV are sister companies under the Multichoice Africa group, a number of people think they share products like remotes which is not true. One of the most popular questions is, can a DSTV remote work on a GOTV decoder? This question made me curious so I decided to put the task into the experiment. Unfortunately, the DSTV remote failed to connect with my GOTV decoder.

So I contacted both DSTV Uganda and GOTV Uganda to inquire whether the DSTV remote can work on a GOTV decoder and their response was NO. Only the GOTV remote can connect with a GOTV decoder.

If your GOTV decoder has technical issues and you are thinking of replacing it, check out the GOTV remote prices and where you can buy them.
